Pulisic Watch: USMNT super sub’s sensational assist, goal v Liverpool
Who knows if Chelsea boss Frank Lampard could’ve gotten more than 30 minutes out of Christian Pulisic, but we bet he wishes he did.
The American subbed into the game for a fading Mason Mount and supplied a highlight reel assist and a matching goal within 14 minutes as the Blues changed the score from 4-1 to 4-3 against Liverpool at Anfield.
The assist is an absolute barbeque of three Reds, with Pulisic cutting between Fabinho and Trent Alexander-Arnold and then nutmegging Joe Gomez before sliding a pass past the reach of Alisson Becker for Tammy Abraham to tap home.
His second goal involvement was... just... chef’s kiss.
Callum Hudson-Odoi spotted Pulisic in the box and the American took down the cross and looked to have maybe have wasted his chance to shoot.
But it was calmness, composure, and confidence that saw Pulisic maneuver around Alexander-Arnold to smoke a shot into the upper reaches of the goal.
Pulisic now has nine goals and four assists in under 1650 minutes of Premier League action.
